“Information has come to us that he was in the area with a firearm,” Dobbs told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “We do believe there was possibly another individual with him and we’re currently working that angle, trying to get that person identified.”
Dobbs said the shooting was possibly a case of mistaken identity, and that Nizzear may not have been the intended target.
“I’m not ruling that out, that they just went into the wrong apartment looking for another individual,” Dobbs said. “We have no information this family was involved in anything, or had been involved in anything.”
Davis, who is being held at the Carroll County Jail, does not live in the apartment complex. It was not clear late Monday if Davis knew Nizzear.
The investigation continued late Monday.
